Muncie Origins: Normandy Flower Shop continues family florist tradition - Ball State Daily News
I was around 12 [doing simple little things],” Benken said. “When I started [delivering flowers] after school, I was 16.”
After Benken moved from Muncie to Ohio with her husband, she said, she thought she had left the flower business behind her. However, once the holidays rolled around, Benken said, she found herself working for a flower shop in Ohio because she missed the “chaos and crazy” of the season.
Although Benken and her husband started their family in Ohio, they wanted their children to grow up in Muncie. In 1982, the Normandy Flower Shop, which was established in downtown Muncie in the 1940s, came up for sale. The Benkens decided to make the shop their own.
“It was the [floral] business that I knew,” Benken said. “I wasn’t making much of a living working for other people. It was [my husband’s] idea to buy the flower shop. I just wanted to come home.”
At the time she opened Normandy Flower Shop, Benken said, downtown was “pretty dead” because there were only banks, law firms, jewelry stores and flower shops in the area.
“My pocket book said to move up to McGalliard, but my heart said to stay [in downtown Muncie]. I followed my heart … I stuck with it,” Benken said. “I’ve been here ever since.”
The shop offers arrangements for all holidays, celebrations and seasons. There is a team of six employees who help make arrangements, two of which are Benken’s adult children.
Audrey Scott, Benken’s daughter, said she once left Muncie with her husband to move to San Diego. Scott made a career for herself working at a vet clinic but found herself missing Normandy Flower Shop. Now, she is her family's fourth generation of florists.
“I delivered something to someone on [Ball State’s] campus one time, and she said, ‘It's so pretty, thank you,’” Scott said. “You could ... Dec 18, 2019
The story behind a local Muncie flower shop - Ball State Daily News
Normandy Flower Shop owner Judy Benken thought she would grow up and find out what she wanted to do. Benken’s family owned a flower shop in Muncie. Benken spent a lot of time helping her family's business.
“I grew up in the flower business,” Benken said. “My parents owned a flower shop here in town, but not this one.”
As a young child, Benken would often lick stamps and help with statements. As she got older, she was able to help the family business even more.
“When I was 16 I would deliver flowers after school and learned to do wedding work and I delivered those too,” said Benken.
Benken ended up going off to college. Then after college, she moved to Ohio where she lived for four years. While being away from her family’s flower shop business, Benken tried multiple jobs.
“I thought ‘this is my chance to get out of the flower business’ and I looked for a job and I ended up at a veterinarian,” said Benken. “But I missed the flower business. The holidays rolled around and it just wasn’t the same.”
Benken was shocked at h... Jul 5, 2019
